Cricut Explore

In this guide you will find basic information on using the Cricut Explore electronic cutting machine, as well as instructions for some projects to try!

Make An Appointment

Use the scheduling tool to set up a time to meet for further Cricut instruction.


Cricut Design Space has been updated to a new version, and as such, many of the tutorials and links on this guide do not reflect the current version.  We are currently working to update the LibGuide.  We appreciate your patience, and apologize for any inconvenience.  The basic concepts of the tutorials are very similar to the new version, and the links to the Cricut YouTube channel and social media pages are still good sources of information. 

Cricut Help

A staff member will normally be available Monday-Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, excluding University holidays and breaks, to assist with using the Cricut. There may be times when, due to scheduling conflicts, no one is available for immediate instruction, and while you may come and use the Cricut so long as the LRC is staffed, it is not guaranteed a trained staff member will be there to assist you in using the Cricut. If you are a first-time Cricut user or anticipate needing help, it is highly encouraged that you make an appointment.
